jgViz uses standard grid technologies and Chromium cluster graphics software to schedule the best available distributed graphics pipeline. Visualization of large data sets using computer graphics techniques has become a mainstream requirement for many scientists and engineers. However, achieving interactive performance when rendering a complex visualization often requires high-performance computing facilities. One solution is to exploit real-time graphics accelerators, which are used in the full range of computing devices from games consoles and set-top boxes to supercomputers and advanced training simulators. At the same time, the service infrastructure for distributed networks has produced the third generation of the connected world: the grid. jgViz, our Java-implemented grid visualization system, uses grid functionality to enable transparent access to reliable parallel graphics pipelines. Lightweight and highly portable, jgViz aims to be plug-and-play for the existing grid resource allocation mechanism
